“Granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever”
Psalm 16: 11 NLT
I had a need. With demands on my time and my resources, a refreshing break would restore the emotional drain. In my fast paced world of industrial sales, I hustle, hustle and hustle - always one step ahead of the competition. This action took a toll on me physically and emotionally. Crashing emotionally and physically last week, I screamed “Give me a break! Enough of this already!”
With a severe case of mental block, I turned off the computer and cried. “I quit. I can’t do this assignment. What do I know about taking a break?” The Lord had other plans.
Over and over again, “be still and know that I am God”, resounded in my spiritual ears.
Without money for a cruise or a visit to a spa, what was my solution to “take a break”? During one of my many business trips, I turned off the car radio. Hating the silence, I unloaded all my frustration and fatigue on the Lord. “Lord, I can’t continue like this! Help!” Now, ideas raced through my mind. The heaviness began to lift. I could not wait to get home to my computer. I realized that taking a break was experiencing the Lord’s presence. There I found joy and a pleasant experience.
